The GTS varies depending on the e-tailer in Canada. Runs anywhere from 290 - 350 + online.
Whereas the 9800GTX I just bought cost 299.00 + 9.99 Air shipping. Stellar deal. Excellent Price Point..
Not to mention, the 9800GTX will definitely overclock better, run cooler, with much less power consumption; read any review on the 9800GTX, you'll see. Just read the reviews I posted ^^

That's why I got the eVGA; for the step-up program. Either get the GX2 in 90 days or If the 9900XXX comes out in June, I'm golden. The GTX is a better card, don't be mistaken. And for 10 bucks more (see above) I'm getting a better overclocker.
